Every year, college and university students experience a growing number of fire-related emergencies, according to statistics from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. While there are several causes for these fires, most are due to a general lack of knowledge about fire safety and prevention. On Wednesday, April 23, nearly 90 students representing Greek Life sororities and fraternities at Rensselaer will participate in a fire safety training program. The event will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity house located at 200 Sunset Terrace.
In order to get environmental sustainability into the hearts and minds of the campus community, EcoLogic, the environmental student organization at Rensselaer, plans to host its annual EarthFest event on from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, on the Rensselaer Union patio. The rain date is April 25.
